Unusual Word of the Day: Zaftig

I love discovering new words, we stumbled upon this one after playing a game of scrabble and we were wondering what good words you could make using the letter 'Z'. So out came the dictionary and a fascinating perusal of the latter sections of our OED. My new favourite word is Zaftig, the Yiddish word for pleasantly plump or voluptuous, coming from the word juicy. I love finding out where words come from, this ones seems particularly appropriate!

I originally got this lovely photo here on a Plus Model Magazine, and I added my own definition on top. Feel free to share the love of zaftig ladies, just please link back to this post if you are using this image.
